Five key factors for presenting a successful project plan
Ownership of the building
Our preference is that the building belongs to the applicant (legal entity). If the community has not yet acquired the building, we prefer a long-term binding lease. We also welcome applications from representatives of public sector buildings.
When applying for renovation financing, we assume the existence of a general project plan, which sets out the most important cost items and the corresponding amounts.
Description of the impact
Renovating a building is reasonable if the repair gives the building a new function. We expect a description of the positive impact from successful applicants, which shows for whom the renovation of the building is important and why, and what will result from the renovation.
The successful applicant is not expected to have a fully professional team with construction or business management competencies at its disposal; however, communities with relevant practical and educational background knowledge do have an advantage.
When submitting the application, we ask you to highlight the community’s contribution: it is worth highlighting the contribution of the community from both a financial and workforce perspective.
